Robenson Therezie will likely join the starting lineup alongside William Moore, who is back to his old ways as a stud IDP. Allen could be a decent option in his own right once he returns, after notching 17 tackles (15 solo) and an interception over the first three weeks of the season.
Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (rib) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Coleman practiced for the first time since suffering a fractured rib in Week 2, which paved the way for Devonta Freeman's emergence. As the week rolls on, Coleman's ability to play Sunday against Washington should receive some clarity, but expect him to take on a change-of-pace role to Freeman when he returns to action.
Hankerson has prospered working opposite Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and even tallied his first 100-yard effort this season Sunday against the Texans. A thumb injury could hinder his ability to catch, but Hankerson's situation should provide fruitful as the season progresses.
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones didn't reach 100 receiving yards in Week 4 for the first time this season -- four catches for 38 yards on six targets -- but the blowout nature of the game spurred the Falcons to burn clock via the run game rather than continue to air it out.
He should return to normal Sunday against a Washington defense that has conceded 13.7 yards per catch and six touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Levine Toilolo will likely step in as the primary tight end in an offense that mostly ignores the position. Tamme has eight catches and 11 targets in three games, after Toilolo caught just 31 passes on 54 targets as a 16-game starter last year.
White (personal) returned to Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After tending to a personal matter Wednesday, White was back in his normal capacity Thursday. Seeking to turn around a slow start to the season -- 13 targets, while earning 80 percent of the offensive snaps -- his output could depend on opposing defenses limiting both Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and Leonard Hankerson (thumb) going forward. In the short term, White could return to relevance Sunday against a Washington defense that has given up 13.7 YPC and six touchdowns to wideouts this season.
Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Adams will be re-evaluated Thursday, though a return to the field isn't expected in the near future. The Packers have two games before reaching their bye in Week 7, meaning the team may exercise caution to ensure Adams is healthy for the long haul.
Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Cobb's previous limited showing in drills occurred in advance of Week 2, but owners shouldn't fret, as his availability for Sunday's game isn't in peril. The upcoming matchup should provide numerous opportunities to prosper, as the Rams defense has yielded 36 receptions and 396 yards to wideouts over the past two weeks.
Packers wide receiver James Jones (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
Jones has been a revelation in his return to Green Bay this season, leading the team with 317 receiving yards and matching Randall Cobb's four touchdowns catches for most on the Packers. Continue to watch Jones' status throughout the week to make sure he's available Sunday versus the Rams.
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews totaled two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's victory over the 49ers.
Matthews was quiet in the tackle department, but he did record his third sack in two games. He continues to play both inside and outside linebacker for a Packers defense that ranks in the top 10 in the NFL in yards allowed per game through four weeks.
